  1. Looks Great!! Nice added detail to the engine! Sun visors are a nice addition too. I believe you also made new mirror brackets. Great work!

    Thanks!! I didn't change the length of the kit bed. It is real close to 15' in 1/25 scale or 180mm.

    Sorry to take so long getting back to you. I've been out of town for a week for my wife and I's 20th anniversary. The first thing that I did was widen the bed close to 4 scale inches. This was to make it look right to me with the larger tires. I then lowered the sides. These beds always looked like coal beds to me and way too tall. I then took the backside of a hobby knife and cut a groove in the lower outside brace. This is for my aluminum sheeting to slide into. I sheeted both sides with thin dented aluminum. i sheet all of the inside with aluminum too. I cut the upper board off of the kit side boards. I shortened the rear tailgate frame. I made new outside posts from stryrene. I made a new cab guard with a scratch built roll tarp. The tailgate is framed in styrene and sheeted with aluminum. I made a new cylinder from the kit base and aluminum tubing. The mudflaps are rubber, made from an inner tube so that they will flex when the bed is up.

    Thanks guys!!
  11. This one began with the Ertl kit. The engine is a 6v-92T Detroit diesel. The dump bed was modified. It is meant to look like a refurbished truck that has found new life from someone wanting to start out in the dump trucking business.
